A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

National Quilting Day

Today is a special day...it's National Quilting Day! So kudos to all my sewing sisters, quilters, and people who love quilts! And because I've been inspired  by so many folks through 30 years of quilting, I am thankfully, energized almost daily in honing my skills and craft and rarely tire of the "fiber arts"! Years ago my husband scratched his head when I went on a quilt retreat and I returned to confirm that, yes, we do spend hours not only sewing and quilting the days away, but talk about it too (from fabrics, to patterns to quilting designs to designing our own quilts - believe me, it all gets discussed...and then some!).

Truly, I am grateful to my tribe of "sisters of the thread" (and Frank) of the Southern Comforters of Bowie, Maryland! In fact, next weekend is our show where many beautiful quilts will be displayed, along with vendors and a whole lot of fun and beauty to be had at Samuel Ogle Middle School, 4111 Chelmont Lane, Bowie, MD.

In true spirit of the day, I am including two quilt tops recently completed; a tshirt quilt for Laura Murphy and another commissioned quilt for a friend's father!

BSoleille! The bright side of National Quilting Day,  and for lots of folks (including me) means "everyday" doing what we love!
